"This book investigates the intersection of food and immigration in North America through a novel construct: the immigrant-food nexus. To do this, the book's chapters delve into three overarching areas in which immigration and food intersect from the national level down to the daily lived experience of immigrants: Boundaries: Individuals, Communities, and Nations, Labor: Fields and Bodies, and Identity Narratives and Identity Politics. In taking a critical approach towards questions of food, agricultural and immigration policy, the volume's contributors ask: How can the immigrant-food nexus be understood in our current political climate of rising nationalism, and how does an analysis that transcends traditional "micro" or "macro" scales from the nation to the community to the body provide a new way to think about these issues? The contributors synthesize this analysis of "macro" topics within immigration and food with a "micro" analysis of immigrant foodways. Foodways are manifestations and symbols of cultural histories and proclivities. As individuals participate in culturally defined ways of eating, they perform their own identities and memberships in particular groups. How important are foodways as performances, on immigrant lived and daily practices? The concepts defined as "macro" have real, embodied consequences. The concepts defined as "micro" have large-scale, important meanings. The contributors recognize this: their work bridges the scales of the nation, community, and individual bodies to "render visible the political tensions about race, agriculture, immigration, and the future of the nation that simmer in everyday life" (Neubert, Chapter 2). Through critical, multidimensional research, critical food and immigration scholars today find themselves at a generative place to bring fact-based, humanized, and multi-scalar narratives of the immigrant-food nexus to light. The uniqueness of this book lies in the concept of the immigrant-food nexus as a lens for exploring immigration and food in North America. This fulfills a special need: to complicate the binary of macro level policy, and micro level lived experience, showing the intersections between these scales"--

Characteristic histories and literatures of the Jewish people are brought together in this volume and arranged in the form of a cultural mosaic, a distinctly Canadian approach to life. The articles and scholarly contributions contained herein investigate Jewish life and thought, not merely in the Canadian and contemporary context but also in other geographical localities and historical epochs that were formative in the shaping of Jewish history. The wealth of knowledge represented within these pages engages traditional ancient Jewish sources (Talmud and Tanakh, Mishnah and Midrash); topics in Jewish mysticism (Lurianic Kabbala, popularization of kabbalistic literature, the Tosher Rebbe); historical and contemporary themes that address aspects and environ of everyday life (kitchen, classroom, theologians desk, synagogue, Holocaust survival, womens and peace studies). Jewish life and identity, better described than defined, come alive in the reading of this book. Both general readers and specialists will find value in this collection of studies. For the former, it offers a glimpse into the complicated network of themes and perspectives in which contemporary Jews engage. Rich bibliographies of cogent resources avail themselves to the latter. They will nevertheless commonly conclude that, however diverse the terrain, Jewish Studies in Canadawith research ongoing and range ever-expandingoffers vibrant and real response to key questions raised in past generations: Who is a Jew? and What is Judaism?

The vibrant interest in food studies among both academics and amateurs has made food history an exciting field of investigation. Taking stock of three decades of groundbreaking multidisciplinary research, the book examines two broad questions: What has history contributed to the development of food studies? How have other disciplines - sociology, anthropology, literary criticism, science, art history - influenced writing on food history in terms of approach, methodology, controversies, and knowledge of past foodways? Essays by twelve prominent scholars provide a compendium of global and multicultural answers to these questions. The contributors critically assess food history writing in the United States, Africa, Mexico and the Spanish Diaspora, India, the Ottoman Empire, the Far East - China, Japan and Korea - Europe, Jewish communities and the Middle East. Several historical eras are covered: the Ancient World, the Middle Ages, Early Modern Europe and the Modern day. The book is a unique addition to the growing literature on food history. It is required reading for anyone seeking a detailed discussion of food history research in diverse times and places.

52 Shabbats is for 30-somethings who are starting to nest and follow the weekly ritual of shabbat. The book will have 75 recipes and will include suggestions for combining them with purchased convenience foods or other simple recipes to provide the reader with 52 menus for a year of shabbats. Essays throughout will talk about shabbat and how it fits into modern family's lives and how to embrace this ancient tradition and make it relevant for today. Recipes will be reinterpreted for today's tastes; for example, a traditional beef brisket might be spiced with tamarind or BBQ sauce, and there's room for a meal that's built around Trader Joe's products. It's the intent that's important; not the strict adherence to what's been done in the past. The author will tread lightly on any deep research into the history and depths of the Jewish diaspora, but instead will focus on how to bring shabbat into the homes of young Jewish families. The recipes will include a range of difficulty from really easy to challenging. Also, there may be instances where recipes debunk techniques that are thought to be too hard (e.g., how to handle phyllo dough).

Religion and Global Culture draws together the work of a group of historians of religion who are concerned with situating the contemporary study of religion within the cultural complexity of the modern world. The writing of each of the volume's contributors relates to the work of leading historian of religion Charles H. Long, who has identified religious meanings in the contacts and exchanges of the colonial and postcolonial periods. Together with Long, these scholars explore religious practices in a variety of globalized contexts; chapters consider such varied subjects as the rituals of African immigrant communities in the United States, the making of Mohawk sweet grass and black ash baskets, the religious experience of prisoners in the Nazi holding camp of Westerbork, and the regional repercussions of contemporary multi-national business. By locating religion in the conflicted and cooperative relationships of the colonial and postcolonial periods, Religion and Global Culture calls on scholars of religion to reconfigure their interpretive stances from the perspective of the material structures of the modern, globalized world.

"[I]ntersects with very active areas of research in history and anthropology, and links these domains of inquiry spanning Europe and North Africa in a creative and innovative fashion." --Douglas Holmes, Binghamton University Maltese settlers in colonial Algeria had never lived in France, but as French citizens were abruptly "repatriated" there after Algerian independence in 1962. In France today, these pieds-noirs are often associated with "Mediterranean" qualities, the persisting tensions surrounding the French-Algerian War, and far-right, anti-immigrant politics. Through their social clubs, they have forged an identity in which Malta, not Algeria, is the unifying ancestral homeland. Andrea L. Smith uses history and ethnography to argue that scholars have failed to account for the effect of colonialism on Europe itself. She explores nostalgia and collective memory; the settlers' liminal position in the colony as subalterns and colonists; and selective forgetting, in which Malta replaces Algeria, the "true" homeland, which is now inaccessible, fraught with guilt and contradiction. The study provides insight into race, ethnicity, and nationalism in Europe as well as cultural context for understanding political trends in contemporary France.
